Watch a Boston Marathon Bombing Victim Throw Out the First Pitch at a Red Sox Game From His Wheelchair

Back on April 15, Ron Brassard was standing near the finish line at the Boston Marathon when a bomb went off nearby. His leg was injured badly in the blast, and he's now confined to a wheelchair. However, that didn't stop him from throwing out a ceremonial first pitch before the Red Sox/Twins game yesterday. The mother of Krystle Campbell, who died as a result of the bombing, threw out a first pitch as well. Boston Strong!

Watch the first pitches in the clip below.
